Circus, Dance, and Sacred Literature

Humans have always moved or danced as a way of ritualizing their relationship to the Divine. These dances expressed an understanding of God(s), the relationship of human beings to the divine world, and were an expression of thanksgiving for the life cycle events that move history forward: birth, death, and all that is between. Some circus arts, find their earliest documentation as religious practices. This book begins the investigation of what it means for these practices to meet their holy origins once more, not as a form of expression but as a mode of study.

Ethical Dramaturgies

“Ethical Dramaturgies”: a special issue of Performing Ethos: An International Journal of Ethics in Theatre & Performance 

The history of the relationship between theatre and ethics laid out by Nicholas Ridout in the eponymous 2009 book from Palgrave’s Theatre &Series describes the relationship of ethics to theatre in the Western tradition as a shift in focus from ethical dramatic content to ethical theatre practice. Following Ridout’s argument, this special issue of Performing Ethos, “Ethical Dramaturgies,” engages ways of writing, working, and presenting performance as they show up in historical and contemporary theatre, performance, and production practice.
